What's New in Version 15.14.2

* A set of customers reported a crash when the app launches. We have fixed the issue.

Built for El Capitan: We made sure everything works just right for OneNote on El Capitan.

Fixed: On some macs we were using the GPU rather than the CPU, our apologies to your battery.

Fixed: Dragging text between outlines could crash the app. As of this release, it can't.

Fixed: We had an issue with font spacing that many kerning nerds found impossible to ignore, everything should be back to normal now.

Customer Reviews

Very solid note-taking app

If you consider this is free, it is undoubtedly worth 5 stars. It does what you need in a very user-friendly, intuitive way and the cloud functionality is very solid. If I had paid for it I would have rated it at only 3/4 stars though, because its functionality in terms of fonts, formatting, tables, etc is very limited — more so even than the PC version of the same programme.

Great for saving data on multipul devices

What a great app.
Excellent way of saving txt and the sending as a txt via mobile - or simply saving data for use on multipul devices..

Much beter now its been updated and has stopped crashing...

Works well, best note app I have used

I am no a fan of Microsoft products, but OneNote is actually good and it looks like they Microsoft even has found a team that know how to delveop for OS X - nice produce that works and is maintained/developed - new features get added.
